1 Are the three verb forms a safeguide to all other forms? or shall i truly have to master those rules, those long rules full of exceptions?
2 of the verb á¼Î½Î´Î¬Î½Ï‰ the form á¼”Î±Î´Î¿Î½ (page 61 of the pdf) is for the imperfect given, however in lesson 10 (page 58 of the pdf) the form á¼¥Î½Î´Î±Î½Îµ, which one is the true?
3 why is Î¿Ï… behaving as a diphtong in the declensions, ie, forbidin' the ^ to appear as in Î½Î¿ÏÏƒÎ¿Ï…Ï‚, if it sounds as a vowel.
4 as the dative masculine of á¼‘ÎºÎµá¿–Î½Î¿Ï‚ á¼ÎºÎµá¿–Î½á¿³ is given, whereas it should be á¼ÎºÎµÎ¯Î½á¿³ by the rules, is this a ortographical mistake or it falls into the exceptions
5 the prepostions á¼€Î½Î¬ á¼Ï‚ á¼Î½ have, like others, alternate forms á¼€Î½ Îµá¼°Ï‚ á¼Î½Î¯, but unlike others, it is not told how they are to occur -.- when then?
6 how do i travel through the pdf without having to scroll for minutes (ya, there are the booknmarks, but they dont link to all the sections in the book, how can i do my own bookmarks)
vale! (what is the greek for this?)
For what you have learned, mostly. There are exceptions aplenty which you must simply memorize. Also, and I ask you not to take fright from this, the Greek verb has not three but six principal parts. You haven't covered yet the remaining three.
The third principal part is the aorist, not the imperfect. So á¼¥Î½Î´Î±Î½Îµ is the imperfect and á¼•Î±Î´Î¿Î½ is the aorist.

Both Î¿Ï… and ÎµÎ¹ started out their lives as diphthongs (er, not always true for ÎµÎ¹, but pretend it is for now), then became long vowels.
